The Allstate Foundation has awarded the Kentucky Coalition Against Domestic Violence $115,000 in grants for its nationally recognized Economic Empowerment Project. The foundation and the KCADV have partnered 12 years to break the cycle of domestic violence through economic empowerment - to the tune of $1,140,000 in grants for member programs since 2005, including Merryman House in Paducah. The funding support case management, financial education classes, individual development accounts, and micro loans throughout Kentucky's 15 domestic violence programs. Funding will also support KCADV's partnership with the Kentucky Community and Technical College System's 16 community colleges whose transitional students (welfare recipients) are now eligible for financial empowerment services since 2014. Between KCADV's reach to domestic violence programs and community colleges, more than 2,300 survivors of domestic violence in Kentucky will receive economic empowerment services this year. Most survivors are single mothers earning less than $15,000 per year. Seventy-two percent of KCTCS transitional students report being survivors of domestic violence. The Kentucky Coalition Against Domestic Violence is a coalition of the Commonwealth's 15 publicly funded domestic violence programs.
